This Morpeko is an Electric/Dark-type Pokémon appearing in Pokémon Journeys: The Series. It followed the Team Rocket trio of Jessie, James, and Meowth around with the hopes of eating their food. It was later caught by James in PJ070.


Like Iris' Emolga and Goh's Greedent prior to being captured by James, Morpeko is extremely gluttonous and is equal to Greedent in terms of being glutton to food. Morpeko has split personalities within its two forms. In its Full Belly Mode, she is a lovable Pokémon who loves to eat food and enjoys stealing the Team Rocket trio's food as well as their reserves, resulting them getting overwhelm from being hungry. In PJ070, she finally shows her love to James after being captured. In its Hangry Mode however, she becomes malicious and angry if they didn't give her more food and it's overly demanding causing it to attack everyone upon sight from its moves and she is desperate to eat everything.


Morpeko first appeared in its Full Belly Mode in the Galar Region when Team Rocket trio Jessie, James, and Meowth found it eating their food. Jessie threw an empty can at it, but it dodged and ran away, and the can accidentally hit a camouflaged Sobble. Later that same day, after the Team Rocket trio had been defeated by Ash and Goh, Morpeko returned and asked for more food. When the trio rejected it and told it to scram, it transformed into Hangry Mode and used its Aura Wheel attack to send them blasting off.[1]

It was next seen in Hangry Mode at the Team Rocket Trio’s secret base under Vermilion City, having somehow made its way to the Kanto Region. It had presumably followed Team Rocket all the way back from Galar. It proceeded to eat all of Team Rocket’s food again before disappearing. It was later seen again in its Hangry Mode by Team Rocket, eating the honey off of one of the trees that Ash, Goh, and Kricketina had lathered honey on in hopes of attracting a Pinsir. Team Rocket was starving and were afraid that Morpeko would steal from them again. When Morpeko finished the honey, it reverted back to Full Belly Mode.[2]
